Sep-19-11  Lil Swine: 2 connected passed pawns is pretty hard to stop
Sep-19-11  Cemoblanca: 32...Rd8?! 33.c6!
Sep-19-11  leonn0077: now its Svidler's game unless he blunders
Sep-19-11  Bluegrey: <Ulhumbrus> Qg6 was no the best move. The game cntinuation is better
Sep-19-11  Cemoblanca: The "small avalanche" is coming! ;0)
Sep-19-11  lostgalaxy: Maybe because Svidler's playing with a close friend, so he dismissed Qg6.

Prolong the pain. Sustain the pleasure.

Sep-19-11  LIFE Master AJ: After 32...Rd8; White must be better here.
Sep-19-11  Cemoblanca: <wordfunph: no white towel today, Svidler may offer a friendly draw :)>

...and after the draw they will receive the fair play award! ;0)

  moronovich: And now the players have agreed to a draw


Sep-19-11  leonn0077: 34. Bb2 was a miscalculation by Svidler, now the game is even
Sep-19-11  Octavia: Congratulations to Peter Svidler !
Sep-19-11  lostgalaxy: Like the first game, White's assault comes to an anti-climax.

But maybe Svidler's luckier and still stays on top.

  wordfunph: congratulations to Peter "The Wall" Svidler!

touching finish..

Sep-19-11  Ulhumbrus: Svidler draws the game but wins the match.
Sep-19-11  Ulhumbrus: If Grischuk was going to lose the match in the event that he drew this game, he had nothing to lose by playing for the pawn advances ...d5 or ...f5
Sep-19-11  scormus: Well played game by Peter Svidler, and a nice way to finish.

<wordfunph> good call!

Sep-19-11  Cemoblanca: <leonn0077: 34. Bb2 was a miscalculation by Svidler, now the game is even>

I don't think it was a miscalculation by Peter, because there was not more than a draw! It was more an exceptionally fair gesture. Congrats Peter and greetings to the twins.
